New glass! 
For those of you who make jewelry I understand the excitement of getting new beads when I get a package of glass in the mail - especially with new colors I haven't yet tried. The usual purples and greens were accompanied by the new colors of opalescent turquoise, a beautiful caramel color I hope won't lose its color in the flame like so many of it's kind do, and an ivory streaked with deep brown. I can't wait for tomorrow!

 I actually made a large set of marbled beads in one sitting. A rarity for me! Available in the store.

And drama...

The 26,000 acre Bison fire that started on the 4th of July with a lightning strike one mile east of our house.

We are never in short supply!

Please pray for our firefighters.
